Earlier tonight, the Government of Rwanda, through its Ministry of Public Service and Labour, issued a communique announcing to the population of Rwanda that Monday, July 28, 2014, would be a non-working public holiday throughout Rwanda on account of the upcoming annual Rwandan public holiday to mark Eid Al-Fitr.

The aforementioned declaration of Monday, July 28, 2014, as a non-working public holiday throughout Rwanda, is in line with last spring's (2014-03-26) release of the full list of official non-working public holidays in Rwanda for the calendar year 2014 by the Rwandan government, as well as the "Arrêté Presidentiel N°06/01 Du 16/02/2011 Determinant Les Jours Feries Officiels" which, 3 years ago, overhauled the list of Rwandan non-working public holidays (2011-03-07), and which specifies that the date of the annual Eid el-Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday will be set by the Moslems' Association of Rwanda ("Itariki itangazwa buri mwaka na Rwanda Moslems' Association").
